Manchester has become a global focus in the Advanced Materials sector. The wonder material Graphene was discovered at the University of Manchester in 2004. It is now widely recognised as having the potential to change the world in which we live in the same way that the Industrial Revolution did in the 18th and 19th Centuries.
The National Graphene Institute opened in Manchester earlier this year and further major research and development facilities are planned for the city as the commercialisation of Graphene and other advanced materials comes to the fore.
Join us as we explore the effect of the Graphene Revolution on Manchester and look in detail at the next facility planned to be developed in Manchester – the Graphene Engineering & Innovation Centre. Our speakers will be:
Stuart Lockwood, Capital Projects Manager, University of Manchester: Stuart will set the scene to the Graphene Revolution and the critical part that the University of Manchester is playing in this global industry
Martin Clancy, Rafael Vinoly Architects: Martin is lead designer at RVA on the new Graphene Engineering & Innovation Centre on behalf of UoM
Cathy Wignall, Assistant Director, Deloitte Real Estate: Cathy will explore the advanced materials sector and the implications of its growth potential for the economy of Greater Manchester
